Fuel, what a great frickin band. This CD is no different. I first got Something Like Human and thought that was a great CD but let me tell you this one blows their last two efforts out of the water. When they first hit the scene in '98 with their major label debut, they sounded great. 7 years later they are still absolutely amazing. This is their darkest record to date, which is not a bad thing. Natural Selection has spent almost a month in my CD player and still going strong. Great sounding CD I would recommend it to anyone who likes mainstream rock.

Brett Scallions fails to impress me with the lyrics. Flawless I could not find one song on the album that I did not like or at any point wanted to skip over. Every song has it's own meaning and every song is written with feeling. Brett's vocals are also very pinpoint accurate and are very distinct, you won't hear anything like it today.
Overall Impression — 10
Compared to their last two albums this one is definitely their best, not to say their last two were any worse, actually their last two albums, "Something Like Human" and "Sunburn" were very innovative. I love the fact I can keep this CD in my CD player without skipping over any tracks. I love the range that Brett has I love everything about this album. I would not be stupid enough to let this album get stolen. I would buy it again just for the hell of it.
